Catching the divine in the ordinary using natural light and everyday settings is what I do. My style is pretty simple- a dab of traditional (for my youngest clients) mixed with modern lifestyle portraiture, indoors and out. Candid shots are my favorite, and my goal is to always capture a child’s spirit and a family's personality, even if that's not traditional smiles. This is achieved by taking the same family photos I would (and do) take of my own family.

The true beauty of the photograph is the subjects. Being kept on her toes is where Amy thrives! She never shies away from a challenge, hence why she works so well with children and parents! Amy prides herself in getting a few traditional portraits along with the more candid ones. Clients always get a few pictures where everyone is smiling. However, the remainder of the family photo gallery is filled with more ‘fun’ pictures. “A picture is worth a thousand words”, so we are told. Amy’s works speak for itself, as you will see. Let’s just skip over all the ramblings about the photographer and get to the good stuff, all these fabulous family portraits. You’ll most certainly love what you see!

Why hire a professional?
When it comes to family photography, especially when you want to be in the photos of your family. There is much more to getting a great photograph than just snapping the shutter. It’s certainly encouraged to hand the camera to your friend or husband to snap a few with you and your children as much as possible. Those photographs are priceless in themselves. They are indeed beautiful memories. However, more often than not, such family photos a leave a little to be desired, if you know what I mean. (insert chuckle)
This is when it’s best to hire a pro, one of Houston’s most experienced photographers for families and children. With 12 years of photographing babies and kids with moms and dads, I’ve learned a lot about getting the very best family photos with mom included. Let me show you how beautiful your photos will be with you in the pictures! When you choose one of Houston’s most beloved family, photographers. Which, of course, is me, then I will guarantee the photographs will celebrate motherhood in the most beautiful way.
